Feminism Friday Fun

I know I promised a Wiscon report, but it's almost 5PM and I'm STILL catching up - especially after my Detroit SNAFU.


Every panel I was on or attended was AMAZING and full of wonderful, intelligent conversation and new information for everyone to learn. My favorite panel was the Future of Food, where we discussed everything from nifty molecular gastronomy to sustainable agriculture to smart packaging in produce.

The Broad Universe table was bustling as usual, and I got to pick some brains (not in zombie kinda of way) of comic writers and artists along with some excellent novelists.

And our party was FABULOUS! The De-Con-press seemed to really work and I heard lots of compliments on our tea sandwiches - but especially loved was our chocolate and strawberries. Wine and beer moved well, as did the fresh-brewed tea and coffee.

I have not yet down-loaded pictures, and I will give a more thorough report on Monday where I name some wonderful names of people who made the Party happen.

In the meantime, Mary Robinette Kowal - an author you should be following and who I only caught for a brief elevator chat - posted a great blog about women writers here.

And in that blog, there was a meme - a fine meme, a feminist meme. And here I am posting my version of it:

Mary Robinette also wrote:

I’m willing to bet that I’ve read fiction by several of the people that I’ve starred. It’s hard to track short fiction down sometimes - and I would have to concur.

How about you?
